How To Install Commercial CarpetBy: Danny Lipford
This small room is perfect for a piece of low pile commercial carpet we picked up for $100.
Start by aligning the factory cut edges of the carpet against two of the adjoining walls in the room.
Press the carpet firmly against the remaining walls with a 6” drywall knife, then cut through it using a sharp utility knife.
The drywall knife holds the carpet in place and acts as a guide for the cuts.
After the carpet has been cut to fit, fold it back and spread adhesive around the perimeter of the room with a notched trowel.
Carefully position the carpet on the floor, and use the drywall knife to press it into the glue.
